Well, I created my first RealURl config for a multidomain (7 total) 
sites with 3 languages in approxinately 15 minutea after reading realurl 
manual and looking to example from news.typo3.org. I was not familar 
with realurl at that moment. I do not know why others cannot do it. I 
could :)

I checked the features and it seems that most of them are in realurl 
too. RealURL is pretty old and static. It cannot be changed radically 
because compatibility is important. But I think it does well.

RealURL has mostly bugs, no new features asked. Bugs are waiting for my 
free time because I also have to code for life. I could spend more time 
on it when it was my hobby but now it is my life. But if someone 
sponsors the issue, I can fix it really quick.

Well, you should not have problems with realurl if you read manual :)

I see no problem with promoting anything but your message looked like I 
abandoned realurl support and realurl is a piece of crap comparing to 
something shining brightly :) It really did.

Why *I* did not have them? Why am I so unlucky? :)

I still see that people try to do something with realurl and they 
clearly did not read docs before. They just do it as they see it, not 
the way they should do it according to manual. This is the main problem 
usually. May be I did not have problem because I actually ~read~ manual? :)

It reminds me trying to use invented properties on TS objects and 
complaining that they do not work. Each extension, each device, anything 
has its way of operation. If it is operated in other way - 
extension/device/anything is not responsible.

We all do mistakes but there is no need to put human mistakes to software.
